A FitTeam Fit Stick is a proprietary blend of organic ingredients that you can pour into water or mix into a drink of your choice, making it really easy to use on the go.
The product is organic, non-gmo, gluten-free, lactose-free, soy-free, kosher, and vegan friendly. It contains some blend of the following ingredients: green tea, l-theanine, garcinia cambogia, cayenne pepper, 5-htp, caffeine anhydrous, citrus aurantium, grapefruit seed extract, blueberry powder, b-12, and niacin.
The advertised benefits are that it may help provide increased energy, enhanced fat loss, enhanced mental focus, antioxidant benefits, mood enhancement, appetite control, blood glucose control, and improved fat metabolism.
If you read all of the above you may realize that very few bits of the product information actually differentiate from all the other products out there, in fact, it all sounds pretty much the same.
For this review I want to examine four primary factors of what really makes the difference in a health supplement: uniqueness, ease of use, effectiveness, and side effects.
Before I give you an analysis of each of those factors based on the research I did, both online and offline, I have to point out that I am in no way shape or form to give any legally qualified medical advice and that this review is simply my opinion.
We’ve all heard the “all natural” pitch over and over again as it’s quickly becoming an advertising fad. The words all-natural are not defined and could literally mean anything at this point.
Where this product is unique is that it is Organic, Kosher, and Vegan Friendly. Having just one of these qualities makes the product unique enough but to have all three of those qualities in a single product makes the product a rare commodity.
Being free of soy, lactose, GMOs and gluten is very common thing, so I do not find those details rather impressive as those are almost the default setting for any supplement.
Ease of Use
I have used a lot of other supplements. Some of them are in pill form, powder form, or even drink form. The Fit Stick is really high up on my list for ease of use.
The packaging itself is very small and since it’s not pre-mixed into a drink you can simply buy a water bottle anywhere you go and mix yourself a drink at anytime with relative ease.
There are no pills to take and it is not a messy process. For ease of use I find this product surpasses a lot of the other products I have used.
Let’s just be honest here, the product comes with a recommended meal plan that focuses on cutting carbs and calorie restriction. Although it contains known metabolism boosting ingredients such as green tea and caffeine, the effectiveness of those natural ingredients is minimal by themselves.
This is not a miracle cure, even if it burns off an extra 10% of the calories you eat, it will not save you from heavy over eating as you will just end up gaining weight slower or not losing.
However, almost all supplements recommend a calorie restricted diet, so I can’t knock too many points off for effectiveness. Some of the customer reviews indicate that they’ve lost as much as 10 lbs in the first 5 days, a few of which I’ve personally verified, but I believe those results can be achieved by many other supplements as well when combined with exercise and calorie reduction.
There aren’t really any worthwhile negative side effects out of the normal unless you have a medical condition or adverse reaction while taking this product.
The amount of caffeine per serving is about half of what is in a can of soda and there’s some niacin in the product which has been known to cause your face to flush, but there is nothing really in it that has any proven negative side effects.
